Shopping lovers will have a new excuse to swipe their cards. Groupon Day is back, and with it comes a series of offers and promotions that will compete against Amazon’s “Prime Early Access Sale,” which will take place a few days earlier.
From October 7 to 14, bargain hunters can treat themselves or a loved one to that product or experience they’ve been looking for and have had to postpone due to economic inclemencies, such as rising prices due to inflation.
Groupon will launch a limited series of experiences that include glamorous passes valued at $5,000 for $250 that can be used for beauty and wellness services and treatments.
Adventure passes valued at $5,000 for just $250 will also be available to take advantage of and include activities such as helicopter tours, painting classes, and salsa dancing lessons.
Other activities include a Rom-Com getaway valued at $3,500 for $350. Groupon will offer experiences from Los Angeles to New York at deeply discounted rates, allowing you to recreate scenes and experiences from some of your favorite romantic comedies.
According to a recent Groupon study, this holiday season, more than 80% of consumers will plan to purchase more experiences, such as beauty treatments, concerts, or travel, rather than electronics or jewelry.

While the majority of respondents, 64%, are concerned about the impact of inflation, eight in 10 shoppers said they will spend the same amount or more on gifts for family, friends, or themselves as they did in 2021, according to the survey of 1,000 people.
Groupon vice president of brand and performance marketing Melanie Hellenga said in a statement that the deals Groupon will launch seek to “help shoppers stretch their hard-earned dollars and unlock the magic of the holiday season with experiential gifts that will be remembered long after they are opened.”
Groupon Day will look to compete with Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale, which will be held October 11-12 after Amazon placed more than 300 million items during Prime Day in past months.
